Toyota has updated its hydrogen-powered Mirai for 2024, introducing the new Beyond Zero badge previously seen on the Prius. Despite being overshadowed in Toyota’s lineup, the Mirai experienced its best sales year in 2023 with 2737 units sold.
– The Mirai faces limited competition, primarily from the Hyundai Nexo, but Honda is set to introduce a hydrogen-powered version of its CR-V, adding to the segment.
Notable changes for 2024 include the Beyond Zero badging, a new color (Elemental Silver), and the inclusion of the Toyota Safety Sense 3.0 suite for driver-assistance features.
Mechanically, the Mirai remains unchanged, with a hydrogen fuel cell powering an electric motor delivering 182 horsepower to the rear wheels. The Mirai’s base model offers a range of 402 miles on a tank of hydrogen, and Toyota provides $15,000 worth of hydrogen for Mirai buyers. Pricing for the 2024 Mirai starts at $51,215 for the base model and $68,180 for the Limited trim.
The Mirai will soon face new competition from Honda’s hydrogen-powered CR-V, and the article mentions ongoing developments in fuel-cell technology with General Motors and Honda’s joint venture.
